So I want to try building my first mac, because I aquired an old G4 case that comes with a power supply...

....and I bought a 820-1153-A logic board ...

Problem is - I cant find a "list" or resource anywhere that will tell me what CPUs are compatible with which mother boards....etc.

Point being - I cant find out which CPU(s) will actually work with this logic board, or that it can or cannot handle....etc.

Anyone know where I can look this info up?

Is there a chart or something like it online somewhere where I can see what CPUs will work with which Logic Boards?

Thanks in advance

jaekriel,

I did a little Googling and came up with this site, might help. http://www.applemacpunk.com/C1641442...923/index.html

I Googled 820-1153-A logic board and got quite a few lead but this one had a processor type which you can now Google, etc.

Good luck on your build.

I did some googling also. Some dood on Ebay has what he says is a Digital Audio board but for sure he is wrong as it's clearly an older board with 4 RAM slots.

How many RAM slots does your board have? 3 or 4. If it's 4 that proves it's not a DA but either Ethernet or Sawtooth.

Check this URL. Does your board look exactly like this one?
